It's National Men's Health Week!

Men need a health week. Yes, it's true that the vast majority of health-related research has been done on them rather than women, and that they still make more money than we do, but did you know that men die an average of 6 years younger than women do? Furthermore, women are 100% (that's a one with two zeros) more likely to visit their doctor for annual exams and health screenings.

If you are a man, go see your doctor! If you are not a man but know a man, make him go see his doctor!

The Definition of Irony

We went to see Super-Size Me last night. For those of you who haven't seen it yet, make plans to remedy that. It was a very well-done and hilarious documentary, with hard science backing it up. Besides, everything you learn during the movie was covered in my grad school program, so it's almost like you're a mini-me.

But, I digress. The film was a bit late getting started, but no biggee. However, the theater was obviously bothered by this oversight, because on the way out they passed us each a coupon. A coupon good for one free small (sugar-laden and awful for you!) soda.
